What is Dynamic Instability?


Dynamic instability is the tendency of a MT to be immediately subject to rapid polymerization or depolymerization, depending on the local concentration of free, available GTP-bound tubulin dimers. You can watch the effects of dynamic instability when you see a MT "grow" and then "shrink" in real time.
